LAW121 Business and Corporate Law for Nabahat owner of a successful beauty salon and spa

Question 1

Nabahath owns a successful beauty salon and spa. She decided to expand her business premises and a few months ago she bought the adjoining premises which had been used as a news agent. She entered into a contract with Vishal, a builder, who agreed to convert the newsagents for MVR25, 000. Vishal agreed to start work on 1 May and said the job would take about six weeks. Nabahath agreed to pay Vishal MVR5, 000 on signing the contract with the next two installments of MVR10, 000 due on 1 June and on completion of the work. Advise Nabahath in each of the following alternative situations:

(a) Nabahath paid the first installment and Vishal started work on 1 May. On 13 May he told Nabahath that he had underestimated the cost of the work and was having difficulty finding the money to buy the materials he needed. Nabahath had taken a booking for a large group for 1 July and needed to have the work finished before then as the party could not be accommodated in the treatment rooms at her original premises. She said she would give Vishal an extra MVR3, 000 if he guaranteed to have the work done by the end of June. Vishal agreed. He finished the work on time and Nabahath paid the 2nd and 3rd instalments but has not paid the extra MVR3, 000. She wants to know if she can be made to pay this.

(b) Vishal started work on the conversion but shortly after receiving the second instalment on 1 June, he told Nabahath that he was currently working on too many other building projects and that he would not be able to complete the job. Nabahath engaged another builder who finished the work for MVR14, 000. She wants to know if she can claim compensation from Vishal and whether Vishal can recover any more money from her.

(c) Nabahath became concerned that Vishal’s workmanship was of poor quality. On 27 May, she decided not to pay him anything further and asked him to stop work in order that she could seek an alternative builder to complete the work satisfactorily. She wants to know if she is entitled to do this. If not, can Vishal claim any more money from her?
